The Georgian pianist features on the cover of issue 115. Enjoy her best bits below
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor
Enjoy this simply gorgeous performance from Mariam at the Georgian National Opera Theatre in 2017 alongside the Georgian National Philharmonic Orchestra and Conductor Mirian Khukhunaishvili.
Liszt: Consolations (Pensées poétiques),
S. 172: V. Andantino
For her debut album on Warner Classics, Mariam performs a selection of both Chopin and Liszt. Above she plays one of the Liszt pieces from the album.
Bach/Marcello: Concerto in D minor
Another stunning performance that we just had to include on the list. Mariam plays Bach at the Muziekcentrum van de Omroep in Hilversum, Netherlands in 2016.
Nichols Concert Hall in Chicago hosted Mariam back in 2015 for an all-Liszt programme. This is 12 minutes of pure delight.
Liszt: Die Lorelei, S532 | Sonata in B minor, S178
Last but most definitely not least, is Mariam's performance of Die Loreley S273 and Sonata in B minor S178 in the final of the 2014 International Franz Liszt Piano Competition. This performance won her First Prize.
